Summer fairs of Traditional Knowledge aimed at disseminating the collected traditional knowledge skills and technologies, with cooking of traditional pastoral lost to majority dishes, demonstrating pastoral games and theatrical shows devoted to traditional livestock keeping, display of pastoral traditional breeds, technologies, practices collected from custodians and practitioners.  Farmers and tourists, as well as general public were invited to attend these celebrations.

During fairs there was a presentation of Pastoralist-to-Pastoralist Schools' concepts and topics. It is important to notice that the participants of the schools were identified during the fairs.
